Smart probe design

Microarray Probe Design

Illumina offers a powerful, easy-to-use online tool that enables researchers to design microarray probes for Illumina custom genotyping arrays. The DesignStudio Microarray Assay Designer helps researchers evaluate loci and create the most successful custom genotyping assays.

Array Probe Design

Metrics returned by DesignStudio provide success prediction information, validation status, and minor allele frequencies from published studies. Researchers should use these metrics to select an initial assay panel that includes microarray probe designs predicted to have a high likelihood of success in genetic analysis experiments.

Use DesignStudio to design microarray probes for custom genotyping assays. With high multiplexing capabilities and flexible multi-sample microarray formats, our genotyping products open up new opportunities for human and agricultural studies.
